NAME

Catmandu::Plugin::Versioning - Automatically adds versioning to Catmandu::Store records

SYNOPSIS

 # Using configuration files

 $ cat catmandu.yml
 ---
 store:
  test:
    package: MongoDB
    options:
      database_name: test
      bags:
        data:
          plugins:
            - Versioning

 # Add two version of record 001 to the store
 $ echo '{"_id":"001",hello":"world"}' | catmandu import JSON to test
 $ echo '{"_id":"001",hello":"world2"}' | catmandu import JSON to test

 # In the store we see only the latest version 
 $ catmandu export test to YAML
 ---
 _id: '001'
 _version: 2
 hello: world2

 # In the '_version' store we'll find all the previous versions
 $ catmandu export test --bag data_version to YAML
 ---
 _id: '001.1'
 data:
  _id: '001'
  _version: 1
  hello: world

 # Or in your Perl program
 my $store = Catmandu::Store::MongoDB->new(
            database_name => 'test' ,
            bags => {
                data => {
                plugins => [qw(Versioning)]
            }
        });
 
 $store->bag->add({ _id => '001' , hello => 'world'});
 $store->bag->add({ _id => '001' , hello => 'world2'});

 print "Versions:\n";

 for (@{$store->bag->get_history('001')}) {
    print Dumper($_);
 }

DESCRIPTION

The Catmandu::Plugin::Versioning plugin automatically adds a new 'version' bag to your Catmandy::Store containing previous versions of newly created records. The name of the version is created by appending '_version' to your original bag name. E.g. when add the Versioning plugin to a 'test' bag then 'test_version' will contain the previous version of all your records.

When using Catmandu::Store-s that don't have dynamic schema's (e.g. Solr , DBI) these new bags need to be predefined (e.g. create new Solr cores or database tables).

METHODS

Every bag that is configured with the Catmandu::Plugin::Versioning plugin can use the following methods:

get_version(ID,VERSION)

Retrieve a record with identifier ID and version identifier VERSION. E.g.

    my $obj = $store->bag('test')->get_version('001',1);

get_previous_version(ID)

Retrieve the previous version of a record with identifier ID. E.g.

get_history(ID)

Returns an ARRAY reference with all the versions of the record with identifier ID.

restore_version(ID,VERSION)

Overwrites the current version of the stored record with identifier ID with a version with identifier VERSION.

restore_previous_version(ID)

Overwrites the current version of the stored record with identifier ID with its previous version.

OPTIONS

version_compare_ignore

By default every change to a record with trigger the creation of a new version. Use the version_compare_ignore option to specify fields that should be ignored when testing for new updates. E.g. in the example below we configured the MongoDB store to add versioning to the default 'data' bag. We want to ignore changes to the 'date_updated' field when creating new version records

 # catmandu.yml
 ---
 store:
  test:
    package: MongoDB
    options:
      database_name: test
      bags:
        data:
          plugins:
            - Versioning
          version_compare_ignore:
            - date_updated

 # In your perl

 # First version
 $store->bag->add({ _id => '001' , name => 'test' , date_updated => '10:00' });

 # Second version (name has changed)
 $store->bag->add({ _id => '001' , name => 'test123' , date_updated => '10:00' });

 # Second version (date_updated has changed but we ignored that in our configuration)
 $store->bag->add({ _id => '001' , name => 'test123' , date_updated => '10:15' });

version_transfer

This option autmatically copies the configured fields from the previous version of a record to the new version of the record. E.g. in the example below we will create a versioning on the default bag and add a rights statement that can not be deleted.

 # catmandu.yml
 ---
 store:
  test:
    package: MongoDB
    options:
      database_name: test
      bags:
        data:
          plugins:
            - Versioning
          version_transfer:
            - rights:

 # In your perl

 # First version
 $store->bag->add({ _id => '001' , name => 'test' , rights => 'Acme Corp.' });

 # Second version we will try you delete rights but this is copied to the new version
 $store->bag->add({ _id => '001' , name => 'test'});

 print "Rights: %s\n" , $store->bag->get('001')->{rights}; # Rights: Acme Corp.
